Part of the ‘Evocations Collection’, telling the story of the scent of specific locations – sweet, unspoiled, eternal nature. Inspired by Delphi nights, the ancient Greek sanctuary. The Greeks considered the centre of the world to be in Delphi, marked by the stone monument known as The Omphalos (navel). Attique recreates “Attic Nights”, by Roman author Aulus Gellius. In the shade of a gnarled fig tree, the scholar spends his evenings studying in the scrub of Mount Parnassus, near the sacred sanctuary at Delphi. The sea breeze blows through the coves and mixes aromatic herbs with the scent of the green figs on the trees. Attique creates a modern interpretation of an ancient piece of work bringing classic and modern notes together on perfect harmony.

HOW IT WEARS
Attique is and Eau de Parfum with 6-8 hours wear on the skin. A creamy scent with unmistakable note of Fig shining through; Attique dries with a somewhat complex composition of wood and green, balanced enough to make this scent pleasing on the skin, and super easy to wear.
The layers of Attique, keep us enjoyting this fragrance throughout its entire wear. A clever Fig scent that keeps telling a story for hours to come. We love how it develops so gently, taking us to a seaside town with ripe fig trees and the gentle softness of white flowers with a subtle aromatic and citrus scent.
